This is a very interesting museum to visit. Kids under 18 are free, so you don't go broke taking the whole family. The hot glass blowing and sculpting are very entertaining attractions.

Very good place; loved their collection and interactive sessions. The 'make your own glass artifact' can pass; in fact a waste of money!

If you're going to Niagara, or to the eastern seaboard from the midwest, plan a side trip to this gorgeous, world class museum. I's really well worth it as a destination of its own, there is more here than you can catch in one day. Demos and workshops are scheduled daily, history of glass interactive exhibits, themed shows and collections,... More

As you enter the main floor, there is a large market devoted to glass items, souvenirs, books etc. for sale. Leave this area until the end of your tour, as there is a lot to see in the other areas and on other floors - glass from Ancient Asia to early automotive glass to windows from the space shuttle to...

This turned out to be a world class museum. Wonderful demonstrations, unique gift shop, history of glass, hands-on kid activities and historic collection of glass artifacts, creations etc. I'd recommend it for everyone..I was surprised at how many foreigners had found their way to this attraction - word gets around.

So much to see and learn about this material that we use in everyday life and not enough time. When you are on the tour bus to Niagara, they make a short halt at the Corning Glass Factory and Museum. Its your lunch stop too - tip: pack up a sandwich to eat later on the bus and spend that... More

You won't want to miss this! I made my own glass piece! There are many things to choose from to make your own glass! The museum was very nice with an interactive museum on the third floor. The show were great, you won't want to miss they were fun. We were there 3-4 hours and could have spent more time... More

We had a wonderful visit to Finger Lakes and part of the visit was to Corning. We arrived at Corning to discover they had this amazing bus system where you park your car at the informative visitors centers then you can hop on a bus and they drop you off at the Corning Museum, or Rockwell Museum of Western Art...

We stopped in Corning just to go the the glass museum and it did not disappoint. It was very interesting, informative and housed quite an extensive collection. Allow a few hours if you visit, because it takes quite awhile to go through and really appreciate the wonderful, and sometimes,amazing collections that you will see.
